A Comprehensive Guide to Training Your Puppy to Herd Sheep.

The Perfect Partnership is a series of 10 videos that have been filmed and devised to provide comprehensive detail in various aspects of a puppy’s upbringing, including the first steps with sheep.  You can purchase individual chapters, however because all of the videos are interlinked with the same/similar themes running through them,  by purchasing individual chapters only, may not provide a true or complete picture or guidance you are looking for. The common themes are  “the stop, recall, empathy, clicker training and in general guidance and nurturing”. The overall aim is to build a strong and everlasting bond where sheep work is seen as a partnership and beautiful poetic art form with no place for old fashioned methods.  By using our methods you will not only provide a totally fail safe environment for training. You will greatly minimise the problems you are likely to face in the future. This carefully edited compilation of videos consciously includes the highs and the lows, to demonstrate how mistakes and problems are turned into learning opportunities. The use of Clicker Training is novel to sheepdog training but widely used in many other disciplines with great success.

What if I don’t want to work my dog with sheep.

Many people have Border Collies but do not wish to train them to herd sheep. However the essential ingredients of working a dog with sheep are the”stop” and “recall” which are exactly the same as any pet dog with a high chase and prey drive, so the ability to achieve these quickly is a must. The chapters on starting with sheep are just as relevant to non working dogs as working dogs because they all have the same instincts. Many of our clients report how our methods have helped them achieve success. When a collie can’t work sheep, it looks for substitutes and these can include: birds, squirrels, rabbits, cars treats or toys or any livestock. Our online sheepdog training course will enable you to strengthen your bond with your puppy and to achieve a good stop and recalls with them, ensuring their safety.
